Speaking

Over the past few years there have been special events that I have really enjoyed. Travelling to the USA in 2015 and 2018 to speak about my work as a celebrant and presenting to Australian Funeral Directors in 2017 on the changing shape of funeral ceremonies.

Another Day Another Black Dress

You understood the situation well, and I can’t think of how any one else would have done it better.

Brian H.

The ceremony was elegant and dignified. You truly have a gift for writing and capturing the spirit of the person.

Lisa, May 2013

…thank you for your calm, wise and professional role in making Peter's funeral service the warm and dignified (and sometimes funny) occasion it was.

Margaret, April 2017

What a beautiful, warm, graceful and caring approach and manner you have. You are brilliant at what you do Stephanie!
